Volunteering is the perfect way to feel connected to the community. The simple act of offering your skills and enthusiasm will positively impact the lives of others, as well as your own.

There are many benefits to volunteering at the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, Inc.! Here are just a few:

Build Your Skills and Your Resume
Community work is a great way to build your resume and your skills. When you volunteer, you’ll have the guidance of employees who are specialists in their fields. With our more than 50 programs you will have an opportunity to find a program where you can develop the skills you seek.

Develop a Career Network
Networking is an incredibly important part of searching for jobs and building careers. Community involvement is one of the best ways to make connections and foster relationships that do just that.

Enhance Your Education

Be a Part of Your Community

There are many diverse communities throughout te St. Louis metropolitan area—the best way to learn about them is to become a part of them. And by the simple gesture of offering your skills and enthusiasm, you will positively impact other lives, as well as your own.
